Director & company secretary Ashley Carson has thanked fans who have taken advantage of the ‘early bird’ discount offer on season tickets, with around 2,500 sold before the deadline.
“The season ticket sales have been very encouraging and I’d like to thank everyone who has pledged their support by purchasing a season ticket,” said Carson.
“I’m told that even a significant number of people who vowed they wouldn’t buy a season ticket have renewed. We have also attracted quite a number of new season ticket holders, junior ones especially.
“There has been a lot of positivity as a result of the signings we have made so far and Gary Caldwell, Steve Eyre and Guy Branston deserve credit for the work they have done on the recruitment side, bringing in some quality players.”
"The teamwork so far has been very professional and it is rewarding to see so many quality new signings being made so early on in the close season."
IT issues were experienced on Friday, leading to a delay in the processing of season ticket purchases.
Ticket office manager Karen Wood said: “Anyone who has tried to buy a season ticket over the phone today and left a message will be contacted on Tuesday.
"Their season tickets will of course be processed at the discounted rate. Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused."
